Samsung ha way clearer pictures than almost all of those tv's which is why they're so much more expensive. Not the mention this is a smart tv if you buy the usb adapter.

??? standard HDTV's are 1080p, this is 1080p. To be 'twice the resolution' it'd basically have to be a 4K tv, which it isn't, because no one makes them.

Yikes. The earlier one (40" 240hz) had ATSC specifically listed, this one doesn't seem to.

Smart TV features? Where does this info come from? Certainly not from the data Woot has listed here.



Thanks for bringing this to my attention. My info is culled from several sources, but I could be wrong. I will address all 4 of the points you quoted.

3) See the below YouTube video titled, "Unboxing TV 3D LED 32" Samsung UN32EH6030 Full HD Parte 3." The man is clearly accessing online videos, and there seems to be some sort of app screen. I don't know if the browswer is built into the Samsung TV, or whether he is merely using the TV as a computer monitor (or showing some other SmartTV device, i.e. their Blu-ray player).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_qJcf1cz2E

Of note, I did find one Portugese review that clearly said that it was NOT a SmartTV.

UPDATE: THE VIDEO DOES SEEM TO SHOW THAT THE MAN IS USING THE TV AS A COMPUTER MONITOR. NOTE THE TASK BAR ON THE BOTTOM. SO MAYBE THIS TV CANNOT ACCESS THE INTERNET AND HAS NO APPS. WHAT A WASTE OF THE ETHERNET CONNECTION!

4) All the extensions, containers and codecs it can play are listed on page 18 of the manual. The videos (and music and photos) are usually played through the USB port.

5) This TV has Samsung's AllShare, which the manual describes as "AllShare Play connects your TV and compatible Samsung mobile phones/devices through a network. This feature enables you to enjoy the various media contents (videos, photos, music)." I have a Samsung Blu-ray player where AllShare allows me to access files off my PC. I don't know if this TV uses a lesser version of the feature.

6) The 1080p is listed in Woot's description.

[MOD NOTE: embedded the video. das is all.]



It appears as if he's using windows 8 OS. Has anybody been able to confirm if this uses an ATSC tuner? I'd basically like to be able to plug up an OTA antenna to receive local channels. Thunder or any body else, please confirm. Thanks in advance.

It appears to be only "semi-smart." I don't know about all the features, but then network port appears necessary for its AllShare Play feature where various devices can share video, music and photos.

About the only time you'll get to enjoy a 3D movie is when you buy one. At that point, watching 3D becomes a special treat and putting on the glasses is part of the attraction.

In the long run, you'll have so few 3D occasions (depending on how often you buy) that wearing the glasses won't be such a nuisance.



Many Blu-rays, especially of blockbusters, are released in 3D. And many classics have been or may soon be converted to 3D, i.e. Titanic, Star Wars, etc. I can definitely imagine many of Hitchcock's classics remastered in 3D.

The dearth of material is no different than early adoption of any media technology. Owners of the first color TVs complained about the lack of color shows (and many viewers probably compained about headaches too given how bad the first color TVs were). Likewise for early adopters of DVD and Blu-rays.

You couldn't find it because the website detected that that you live in N. America and only showed the units made for your region. This is a model meant for Latin America, specifically S. America. You can find it on Samsung's Brazilian and Argentinian sites. See the below link. And if you Google the model, you'll see a lot of S. American sites discussing it. It's real and it's Samsung, but there are some questions about Warranty and electronic standards. for example, will US repair centers honor a non-US warranty? And will the tuner and other compnents match US standards (does it even output in NTSC???)? Will the EPG work? Etc, etc.

Thunder is ThunderThighs, za Woot staffer that moderates these forums in the overnight hours. She's real cool and participates quite a bit.

BTW, I used to agree with you that most people have cable or satellite but have since learned how many people only use an antenna. In fact, despite having cable, I find myself also watching some OTA channels that aren't carried by Time Warner.

ps - Welcome to the discussion forums!

From the samsung link on page 1, it says the tuner is for ISDB-T that that site listed the model number exactly as specified in the woot description.
So, this tv will probably not be able to receive OTA signals in the US market.

For those who are concerned that this may not have an ATSC tuner to receive OTA programming, you can always buy a converter box. Yes, I know it's annoying to have another box to plug in but it's a viable option. Many were sold when the US converted from Analog to Digital TV a few years ago. In fact, the government had a rebate program to ease the pain of conversion. Many people have since bought new flat panel TVs have have built-in ATSC tuners so you'll see many of these converter boxes for sale real cheap. Just look on eBay.

Make sure the box is able to receive HD channels if that's important to you.

For example...

If you have all that on a 32" TV your crazy...this would be a perfect guest bedroom or kitchen TV. By the way with my receiver i have 6 things hooked up and using 1 HDMI slot on my TV, modern technology is amazing

Those who are concerned that this isn't a SmartTV can always get a SmartTV dongle. Most are based on Android which gives you access to thousands of apps.

Both of the below models got very good reviews.

So far, I think you might be correct. I just researched and read through multiple websites to see if an ISDB-T tuner would work in the US using an OTA antenna and from what I read, the consensus is it won't.

My 32" TV has 5 HDMI ports are 4 are already used. I will probably need an HDMI switch soon because I have 2 more HDMI devices to add. I also have devices on the Component and Composite inputs. In fact, even the RF antenna is used since I also watch OTYA channels not carried by Time Warner.

On the HDMI inputs are: 1) HDTV cable box, 2) Pioneer DVD recorder; 3) Streaming media player; 4) Blue-Ray player. I plan to add another DVD recorder and my Windows PC via HDMI. On the Component input is an old Tivo unit, and a SVHS VCR is on the Composite inputs. On the RF antenna input is a Mohu Leaf antenna to receive OTA programming not carried by Time Warner.

If you install NVidia 3D Vision for TVs then it will :-)

Just got mine and I'm really happy. I haven't tried 3d yet, but it's a good quality HD TV.

This is for a bedroom with an angled ceiling so there's no room for a larger TV. I replaced an old 22" LCD that was heavier than this one.

I called that number multiple times before I realized this thing was for South America and the tuner would not work over the air. The message is, "no one is available to take your call, please leave a message." And guess what, no return calls.
